Poll shows Tories lead but Ontario Liberals could return with a minority government
Results are based on a Toronto Star poll by Forum Research

The Ontario election writ doesn't come down until Wednesday but the big three party leaders were clearly on the campaign trail over the weekend.

PC leader Tim Hudak took his regular rotational spot hosting NEWSTALK 1010's The Province and for the most part he was trying to spin a positive message for voters.  
It's about his 5-point plan, released in January, to create a million jobs.

Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne spent some of her weekend time going after Prime Minister Stephen Harper for dumping on the Liberal budget proposal to set up a provincial pension plan for those who don't have a company pension.

For her part, NDP leader Andrea Horwath says the Liberals cannot be trusted to deliver on their promises and she accuses the PC's of creating chaos at Queen's Park and alleges that Tim Hudak got nothing done for Ontario residents.

The first opinion sampling since Premier Wynne pulled the plug was done by Forum Research, automated telephone polling on the weekend.   

It shows the PC's with 38 percent, the LIberals with 33, the NDP with 22.  

Forum Presidnet Lorne Bozinoff told the Toronto Star that based on this sample, the Liberals would return with a minority:  49 seats to the PC's 45 and 13 for the NDP.

What the Forum numbers show is that in the ridings where the Conservatives lead, they lead big but they don't have a lead in most ridings, the Liberals do.
